The Ivy St John's Wood
We always keep a number of tables unreserved throughout the day, allowing you to sample our range of café-style menus at your leisure from breakfast until late, or you can simply pop in for a drink and some nibbles – zucchini fritti and truffle arancini are amongst our favourites.
Open seven days a week, The Ivy St John’s Wood includes outdoor Parisian style street seating, and brings some of the familiarity and charm of The Ivy brand to the already fashionable St John’s Wood.
Had a lovely meal and the service was impeccable
Overall The Ivy in St Johns wood is excellent , service can be a bit hit and miss .
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Service was impeccable! Steak amazing. For a treat great place to come.
Really enjoyed our meal here. Would recommend if your in St Johns wood
Lovely décor at The Ivy in St John's Wood, but I've eaten there a few times now and the food is a bit forgettable. I was there with my mum on this occasion and although the restaurant wasn't busy (it was 5pm on a Tuesday) we were pretty much ignored by the staff (of which there were many) and had to ask to order food and drinks, as well as prompt them to bring some items which had been forgotten. We had one very nice waiter (from Goa), but the rest of the staff just seemed to swan about looking self-important and unapproachable. I eat regularly in fine dining/Michelin-starred restaurants, so I know it doesn't have to be like that. The Ivy obviously has a very recognisable brand name and style.... but it's making them very smug. I won't be going back there.
We had alovely dinner
Wechangedtables without any fuss -lovely service and a good standard of food
Will go back
Lovely food. Good service. Wine excellent. Comfortable and friendly.
Venue and food were excellent:) no complaints. The service is very good
My husbands soup was cold ,the bread burnt , the zucchini inedible and the fish cakes did not taste fresh to me We gave eaten at the ivy group a lot but no more Think they have really taken their eye off the ball The previous week I had booked at St Albans to find my booking had been cancelled ———not by me !
We had an amazing evening celebrating my birthday. We booked for 8 people and were given a private room. This was lovely as although we could still hear and see the restaurant it was much more intimate. The food was excellent and we had great service. I would go again.
Lovely food especially the tuna starter. Friendly service.
Great restaurant, great food, great service and good wine list. Only only wish they would open an Ivy near Leighton Buzzard
I have been several times and it’s always been 5 stars but this time the food wasn’t great but it was rectified by the staff very quickly. Will still definitely go back.
We tried the set lunch menu which is limited but the food was good and well presented. Service was excellent.
Lovely buzzy restaurant, not overpriced. Lamb rump was tough...unfortunate as the food part is a bit critical no matter how nice the atmosphere and staff.
Brilliant service as it always is in any of the Ivy establishments.
Food was equally delicious and I look forward to my next visit.
A very nice place indeed with an up market atmosphere. Food was excellent but a few errors in that some of it was not hot. However this was soon corrected and some taken off the bill. So handled professionally.
Excellent choice on the menu. A dish for every pocket.
An excellent local restaurant!
Great food .
Good restaurant with nice food good and prompt service
Lovely food plain but done really well
Great value but down to earth
Value is not there ! Food is up predictable and thus the
ambience of the place is wasted !
Staff seems so busy even when place is empty and getting
attention is difficult even though the are very nice when you are able to get their attention!
Some systems and procedures need to be streamlined and more stress laid on the consistency of food quality!
Great experience : excellent service, delicious food, very comfortable and relaxed, yet feeling special ! Will definitely come back
Very nice place with , perfect service, friendly staff and nice food, will definitely return
The staff are always so professional, kind and accommodating. I love the atmosphere and always looked forward to my next visit.
My wife and I recently ate at The Ivy. I had the Fish and Chips and my wife had a hamburger. Both meals were very good as was the service. The restaurant was full and very lively but not horribly loud. All in all a great experience. When we're back in the UK, we stop by again.
We had a very enjoyable meal. The waiter who attended to us was very pleasant and informative. We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the experience
As always a wonderful evening at our favourite restaurant!
It was a very enjoyable evening,good food service with professionalism
Best place in St John’s Wood
Excellent food and amazing service! The Fillet Steak was great but came out medium instead of medium rare but was not a big thing. The waitress was always checking up on us and made us feel welcome. Will be back again for sure!
The food was undercooked and the dressing had a foul-smelling, was probably stale ..... the sides were poorly presented.....Overall a very bad experience. We had to return half of the food...and leave the restaurant without having the lunch yet paying for the majority of the bill along with 12.5 % service charge for the poorest ever service.
Will certainly not recommend anyone unless someone is interested to spoil their meal/ mood
I was really looking forward to going here.... food was good, but there were not enough staff for the amount of people that were booked in.... Such a shame as I can imagine the service would have been much better... I was booked for 7pm, it was not too full, but by 8:30pm it was really busy and the service dipped quite drastically.
My bill ended up with 1 side that was not ordered and 2 of another dish - when we only ordered one. Disappointing but I am just putting it down to be a bad Friday.
Staff were doing the best - but it was hard.
The food was amazing but the service wasn’t so great. I think for the prices you’re paying it left a lot to be desired
Faultless. Everything was perfect, food. Drinks, service and atmosphere. I recommend the shepherds pie! Delicious
Wonderful restaurant with great food and better than average service. The prices have crept up though. Would still go back and recommend others to go.
Low quality food
Not worth the bill.
I visited the Ivy with my family for my wife's birthday. I booked the Ivy as it has a good vegan/vegetarian menu as well as a variety of traditional choices. The food was excellent and our three young children all enjoyed the food they ordered.
We visited late afternoon when it was quiet and the service was good.
